When I read about Dearborn Denim I was intrigued. American materials. American workers. I was concerned about not being able to try them on before buying. But for only $60 and a fair return policy, I decided they were worth a try. I used the fit guide and ordered. A few days later, my skepticism turned into a smile. The jeans were well constructed and the material was perfect for summer wear. It had some stretch, which ensured a good fit. I smiled when I put them on. $60 well spent.

Probably one of, if not the, most comfortable pair of jeans I've ever worn. Sometimes denim companies will have their sizes off an inch or two...probably, in my opinion, to make people feel slimmer than they are. These, however, are spot on, so make sure you take a tape measure of your waist before placing an order.

Our sizing app creates a statistical average for your waist size and inseam based on a statistical average derived from the largest database of body measurements in the world. We then compare that measurement to the measurements of our jeans and make a recommendation. Not everyone is average, but we have over 90% accuracy with the sizing app during testing.
We preshrink the jeans at our factory. We suggest washing your jeans inside out on cold and tumble dry on low in order to prevent any further shrinkage. If you want to preserve color as much as possible, we suggest you hang to dry.
Yes! We can’t wait to expand our line. Right now almost all our production capacity is tied up with demand for our current lines. Once we can make more jeans in a day, we will begin releasing more styles. Stay tuned for updates!
We accept all unwashed and unworn jeans for exchange or returns within 30 days of delivery. learn more
We’re working on getting more sizes into production. Our small company is trying to stabilize our current line before expanding sizes beyond 42 (men) and 36 (women). Stay tuned for updates!

When you share your referral link with friends and family, they get $10 off their order and you get 1,000 points. Per person! But that’s just one way to earn points.
All sorts of ways! Create your account for 200 right off the bat. Like/Share on Facebook. Follow us on Instagram. Buy jeans (2 points for every dollar spent). Refer Friends. Spend $100. Place 5 orders. Aside from those, we’ll be running spontaneous promotions, so be sure to subscribe to our newsletter and stay in the know.

Your points should instantly update once you complete a promotion!
Nope! Your points will never expire.
When you return an item, you lose the associated credit you originally earned by buying the item in the first place. Sound kind of confusing? Let's run through an example: say you spent $50 towards a 'spend $100, earn 100 points' promotion, and you decide to buy a $20 item, which bumps you up to $70. If you decide to return that item, your progress would also go back down to $50 - it's just like you hadn't bought the item in the first place.
Our team is ready and waiting to answer your questions. Just shoot us a message on our contact page. PS make sure to choose “I have a question about my rewards” dropdown on our contact form.

TEMPORARY: This run of black denim is imported
I can't stress enough - this is a temporary set back, not a direction we see ourselves going in the future.
What happened? I ran into an issue sourcing our American black over black stretch denim, which left us unable to replenish our stock. There simply wasn’t any out there for me to purchase.
This left us with a truly tough decision ... Do we discontinue our black denim line? Or temporarily use imported fabric? We’ve decided on the latter. The fabric's great - picked it straight up from the L.A. design district, but it is imported.
Just like there aren’t many (actual) American apparel manufacturers out there anymore, there isn’t much American made denim floating around either. Once we're able to source American made black over black denim, I will be on it!
Please accept our deepest apologies - we truly appreciate your patience and support as we figure out this short term issue.
